Submitter: I had heard of it but never thought I’d actually see a copy until I started a new job with a collection that needed extensive weeding and there it was. I understand it’s a Christian guidebook to a “happy marriage” but the booklets it is based on were written in the 1920s and even the 1991 edition we have is horrible in its advice to women.

This passage is truly horrifying. I admit it: I threw my head back, slapped my thighs, roared, cackled, and said a few coarse and vulgar words.
Cooing and purring? Ummm…no. My womanhood isn’t so fascinating, I guess.
